This work addresses the problem of estimating the conduction velocity (CV) of single motor unit (MU) action potentials from surface EMG signals detected with linear electrode arrays during voluntary muscle contractions. In ideal conditions, that is without shape or scale changes of the propagating signals and with additive white Gaussian noise, the maximum(More)
OBJECTIVES Our main objective was to propose an alternative to the technique of signal averaging (SA) to avoid shape distortions due to jittering and scale fluctuations, leading to a mean shape signal rather than to an average one. METHODS In case of both time shift and time scale fluctuations of the individual signals, the first point was to show what(More)
A pseudojoint estimation of time scale and time delay between an unknown deterministic transient type signal and a reference signal is proposed. The method is based on the separation between the estimations of the two dependent parameters. The time autocorrelation function (TACF) preserves the time scale and is invariant with respect to the time delay(More)
When several realizations of an unknown recurrent signal are observed apart from a time expansion or compression, the classical way of estimating these time scaling factors is to take one signal as reference for the estimation. This approach does not take into account the common information between all possible couples of realizations. To achieve this task(More)
In this paper, a new method for the estimation of the direction-of-arrival (DOA) and relative propagation delay in the context of multipath rays is described. The proposed algorithm processes the received signals at a uniform circular array and uses ESPRIT-like approach for the estimation of the relevant parameters. We show, in particular that in the(More)
A performance comparison between radio location positioning (LP) in Wide band Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA), more precisely in UMTS FDD cellular phones, using the Uplink (UL) and Downlink (DL) scenarios, is carried out. The radio location algorithm using the Time Difference Of Arrival (TDOA) is applied, where the TDOA is the difference between two(More)
Both single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and mutations are commonly observed in the gene encoding the tumor suppressor protein, p53. SNPs occur at specific locations within genes whereas mutations may be distributed across large regions of genes. When determining nucleotide differences, mass spectrometry is the only method other than Sanger sequencing(More)
